The London Ear - This was our scene

This was our scene

The London Ear on RTE 2XM // Show 168 with Gregory Nolan

On this week’s show, I chat to Irish photographer, Gregory Nolan, whose exhibition ‘This was our scene’ is happening in the Fumbally Exchange in Dublin from October 19.

Hold on here a cotton picking minute, I hear you say, this show is about Irish people outside Ireland, no? In saying that, you are in fact correct. Gregory shot all the images for his exhibit in the mid noughties in London’s indie music scene.

Gregory is based between Europe and the U.S. and has worked with the likes of Bastille and Frank Turner. This collection of photographs gives a great insight into that London scene, not only the bands but also the punters!

Find Gregory Nolan online

You can find out about ‘This was our scene’ on the website and on Facebook.

Seeing as I was back in Ireland last week and spent most of the week preparing for next week’s show, (it’s a biggie) I decided that this week’s episode of The London Ear would feature some of the great music around right now.
